The administration, Aarhus University
Client: Danish Building and Property Agency
Rebuilding by CUBO Architects
The iconic complex of Aarhus University was created by the Danish architect C.F. Møller. Since 1933, all buildings and extensions on the campus have been designed according to Møller’s blueprints. The omnipresent windows, doors and bricks form an ancestral gallery – a collection of portraits of generations past – for inspiration in the future. They are also called C.F. Møller’s testament. The administration centre is located in a completely different kind of building without the stylistic coherence of the others. The art in the open canteen brings Møller’s testament into play.
